Video: Parents, are you sure you know what your child wants to become when he grows up?
Indian parents are always so sure that they know what their children want, but are they always right?
Indian parents have a lot of dreams and aspirations for their kids like everywhere around the world. However, it is not a good advise to be forcing your child to do something he doesn't want to.
"What do you want to become when your grow up?" is a common question that almost everyone asks a child. Many-a-times it is seen that parents take the lead and say that he would become a doctor or an engineer, without even once asking the child what he wants to become.
However, these days there are so many career opportunities that kids have an array of options in front of them, which is why it is essential for Indian parents to change their mindsets and just find out what their child wants to grow up to. In today's times, a child can become anything from a dancer and a DJ, artist, rocket scientist to even a stand-up comedian.
This video shows how parents often forget to ask the child what he wants to become when he grows up and only talk about what they think should be a right career option for him.
For this social experiment, a group of parents were asked what they think their child wants to become when they grow up? They were then asked to make a picture. The kids were taken separately and asked what their dreams were and were also asked to make a picture. The results were surprising!
So when one mother says that her daughter would become a teacher, she is pleasantly surprised to know that her daughter actually wants to become an actress.
Another mother is shocked when she comes to know that her son actually wants to become an artist and not a doctor as she thinks. The video also highlights the need of an open communication between parents and kids and why parents should be on the same page as their child.
